Does Chit Chat have an official holiday? If not we should proclaim some arbitrary day to be International Chit Chat Day! There will be burritos, beards, bacon, and no games.

13th? pfft. Try May 25th -- Star Wars day / Geek Pride Day, Towel Day, Glorious 25th May, National Missing Children's Day, et c.

What does the 13th have? One of the three feast days of Lemuralia, which is pretty cool, but not as cool as May 25.

November 7th is a Wednesday this year. That makes for a lo-o-o-o-ng weekend.
It's as good a day as any, though. And the burrito angle figures in with the month, too.

Perfect.

Although you might want to change it before 6/31 comes around...

When I was a junior in college, I spent a semester studying in Budapest. This was in an era when Hungary was more westernized than most Soviet bloc countries, but still very much under Communist influence, red stars everywhere, etc. One day we asked our Hungarian language instructor if they ever got bananas there. (It was probably my roommate who asked, and he probably wasn't particularly tactful about it.) We were told that yes, they do have bananas, and they usually arrive around November 7th. We were quite surprised that bananas, you know, had their own day.

It turns out November 7th was some sort of "holiday", where, as far as I could tell, we got the day off in order to celebrate the presence of Russian tanks in the city. This may be an over-simplification (correct me if I'm wrong). So, saying that bananas come around November 7th would be akin to saying that local corn comes in around the 4th of July. But I will forever associate November 7th with bananas. Good roll, MMB!
